8 Built-in Storage Ideas for your Custom Home

Storage ideasStorage space is in high demand. It has become one of the most important features homebuyers look for in a home. The key to useful storage spaces is to make them functional, convenient, and attractive. You want storage that is easy to access, near the places where the items to be stored are used and inconspicuous so that it blends in with the rest of the home décor. This can best be achieved by incorporating storage space into the design of the home. Here are 8 built-in storage ideas from one of the best of the custom home builders in Greensboro, NC. 

 

 

  • Utilize Space Under Stairs. The space under staircases in multi-story homes has been used in a variety of ways from bathrooms to closets. Make the best use of this space with organizational tools such as slide-out panels for coat racks, shoes, books, games, and more. 
  • Built-in Seating with Storage. Bench seating along the walls of a room or a window seat offers ample room for storage underneath. This type of storage serves a dual purpose.  
  • Recessed Bathroom Shelves. “Recessed” refers to shelves that are built back into the wall as opposed to jutting out from the wall. They offer a place to put personal items, towels, candles, etc. without wasting space unnecessarily in a small room.
  • Built-in Entertainment Center with Doors. Save space and include extra storage in your living room with a built-in entertainment center. With a designated space for the TV surrounded by shelves for storing movies and games, you won’t need a big piece of furniture. Enclose the entire space around the TV with doors to cover the shelves. 
  • Accessory-Cabinet Behind Full-Length Mirror. Save yourself trips back and forth to your full-length mirror by storing accessories in a tall recessed cabinet with the mirror on the inside of the door. Try on jewelry, scarves, and more conveniently stored behind the mirror. 
  • Built-in Desk and Office Cabinetry. Avoid bulky office furniture by building in a desk and storage cabinets in your office. Include space for computer equipment and office supplies. 
  • Sliding Storage Wall. One of the newest features in storage is the sliding storage wall. It moves on runners attached to the wall, giving you adjustable rooms with built-in storage space inside. 
  • Recessed Storage Behind Art. Want the ultimate disguise for storage? Put cabinets behind art using the piece itself as the door and your guests will be none the wiser.

5 Weather-Proof Outdoor Space Ideas for your Custom Home

sec2-featimg_05Are you in the planning phase of building a custom home? If so, have you given much thought to outdoor spaces? Don’t just tack a deck onto the back of your home as an afterthought. Plan your custom home so that the indoors flow right into the outdoors in a virtually seamless transition. The outdoor spaces should be a part of your home design from the beginning. 

R + K Custom homes are local Greensboro builders that can design custom homes with weather-proof outdoor spaces you can enjoy with family and friends. Here are 5 ideas. 

Covered patio/porch

Ideally, a back patio or porch should be an extension of the house with the roof continuing out overtop for weather protection. For those times when you do want some sun, have the patio continue out from under the roof with room for additional seating. If you plan to include a pool or hot tub, the patio could extend to the edge of the water for easy access. 

Screened-in porch

If you wish to enjoy time outdoors without pests, a screened-in porch provides a bug-free zone for eating and socializing. Throw out old notions of what a screened-in porch looks like – the old fashioned type that consists of no more than wooden beams wrapped with wire screens. Screens can be incorporated in a less noticeable way for a stylish, understated outdoor space. 

Outdoor kitchen

Go beyond your basic backyard grill and incorporate an outdoor kitchen into your home design. Outdoor kitchens typically include built-in features such as a grill, sink, refrigerator, smoker, storage space, and more. An outdoor bar can be fun for entertaining and additional seating space. The best part is that you can avoid making trips in and out of the house while cooking out. You have everything you need already outside. 

Freestanding fireplace/Firepit

Outdoor fireplaces and fire pits create an ambiance that brings people together. Something about a fire taps into our primal senses and draws us in. Consider incorporating a tall outdoor fireplace complete with a chimney or a low fire pit that allows for seating on all sides. Built-in seating of stone or wood can be both attractive and functional, eliminating the need for folding chairs. 

Sunroom/screen room

An indoor/outdoor room is a highly functional space that can be used year-round. With rows of windows that can be opened to screens when the weather allows and closed when needed, a sunroom/screened-in porch can be enjoyed no matter what the weather outside is like.

4 Tips for Choosing the Right Lot for your Custom Home

3206 Pasture View-46Building a custom home is a very rewarding experience, but it requires a lot of careful planning for a successful outcome. One of the most important steps in the process is choosing the right lot for your home. Most home builders in Greensboro have ready-to-build home sites reserved in new home neighborhoods. It’s just a matter of choosing the right one. Here are 4 tips to help you when you’re in the process of choosing a lot. 

Consider the location within the neighborhood.

Before you even look at the lot itself, consider how it is situated within the neighborhood. 

  • Is it on a cul-de-sac? If so, you may have less traffic, a smaller front yard, and a bigger back yard. 
  • Is it a corner lot? You’ll likely have a bigger lot, but you’ll get traffic from two different streets. 
  • Is the lot in front of a T intersection? At night you’ll get headlights shining directly into your windows. It doesn’t have to be a deal-breaker, just consider putting bedrooms at the back of the house. Window treatments help too. Or avoid the lot and the hassle.  

Evaluate the lay of the land/topography

The topography of a lot refers to the land and how it is shaped. 

  • Is it flat or sloping? Land can always be regraded, but it may cost extra to do so.
  • How will the water runoff? Be sure there aren’t low spots where water may sit or run toward the foundation of the home. 
  • Are there trees or other vegetation? You may not have to remove any trees to build your home, but if so, the removal of trees can also cost extra. 

Determine the style and size of the home you want before choosing a lot

Sit down with your builder and get a general idea of the design and size of the home you want to build. If you choose a lot that is too small to accommodate the home you want, you may have to compromise later. If you only want a one-story home and the land is sloped, you may end up with an additional level you didn’t want to make the home fit the land. 

Think about your lifestyle now and in the future

Don’t build a home for your life as it is now if you know it may change. The only certainty in life is that life changes. Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you plan to have kids or more kids? If so, plan for a larger home and make sure your lot will accommodate the size. 
  • Do you intend to stay in this home as you age? If so, plan for easy accessibility, such as a one-story home with no stairs and choose a lot that suits the floor plan. 
  • Do you have aging parents that may eventually move in with you? If so, consider planning for an apartment-type space in the basement or over the garage, which may affect the size of your home’s footprint on the land.

1 or 2 Stories? How To Choose Which Style Of House Will Work Best For Your Family

two story custom built homeWhen you’re designing a custom home the first thing that you need to decide is whether you want a two-story home or a one-story home. Greensboro NC home builders build beautiful homes in both styles so no matter which type you choose your new home will be functional and gorgeous. However, it’s important to choose the style of home that will fit your needs and your lifestyle now and in the future. Not sure how to choose which type of home is the best for you and your family? Here are some things to consider:

Why Do You Prefer One Style Over The Other?

Some homebuyers are convinced they need a certain type of house but they don’t know why. Usually, it’s because of the house they grew up in. People who grew up in a two-story house will automatically think about having a two-story house even if it’s not the best fit for their lifestyle. And people that grew up in a one-story home will do the same thing. So the first thing that you should do when you’re trying to make this decision is to remove emotion from the equation. Concentrate on the function of each home and how it will fit your lifestyle.

Make A Pros And Cons List

A smart way to make a rational decision about which type of home is right for your family is to make a pros and cons list. If you have kids you might prefer a one-story home so that you aren’t climbing up and down the stairs all day putting the kids down for a nap or doing laundry or putting laundry away. If you are older or plan on having this house for a long time you might prefer a one-story house that will be easier to get around as you get older. Or if you have a home business or work from home you might prefer having a two-story home so that you can go to an upstairs office to work away from the chaos and noise of the family hanging out on the main floor. Make a details pros and cons list to help you figure out the benefits of each type of home.

Think About The Future

Many people invest in a custom home planning on it being the last house they ever buy. If you plan on your custom home being your forever home think about the future when deciding whether you want a one-story or a two-story house. Getting up and downstairs might be difficult when you get older, in which case a one-story home would be a better choice. But if you don’t have any major knee or foot problems and you like having two stories health issues in the future may not be a concern. You might be more concerned with having plenty of space for your family members to come to visit in which case a two-story house might be the right choice. Think about the life you want to have in the future and not just the lifestyle that you have now when choosing whether one-story or two-story house is right for you.

Factor In The Costs

A two-story house is great for entertaining or if you have houseguests frequently or if you have a large family. But remember to factor in the cost of maintaining that second story. Here in NC it gets warm in the summer and having a second story with a second HVAC unit can make your utility bills climb as the temperature climbs. A second story also means another mechanical system to maintain and more plumbing and other essentials that need to be maintained. A one-story house usually costs less to heat and cool and maintain over the years. 

Ultimately you will have to choose what type of house fits your lifestyle and your family the best. No matter what type of home you choose Greensboro NC home builders can build a stunning custom home that has all the custom features you want. You can start designing your dream home today by calling R& K Custom Homes or dropping by one of our model homes. 

5 Small Features That Have A Big Impact In Custom Homes

custom home features greensboro, ncAny Greensboro builder will tell you that even the small customizations you can make in a home that is built just for you will have a big impact on the look and function of the home. When you’re building a custom home you get to add in design features that will enhance your lifestyle and take out features that you won’t use. These 5 design features might seem small, but they will have a huge impact on the look and feel of your custom home:

Hardware

The hardware in your home like the drawer pulls, cabinet knobs, faucets, and switchplate covers might not seem terribly important compared to the other design decisions that you need to make for your home. But all of those small detailed pieces are what pulls a room together. Choosing the right hardware that works with the other elements in the room and the materials you have chosen will harmonize the room and make it look polished and effortless. Even though choosing cabinet knobs might not seem important it is a decision that will have a big impact on how your finished home looks. 

Light Fixtures

Light fixtures are another design element that people often don’t think about. However, when you’re building a custom home you have the perfect opportunity to create a unique look for each room with interesting light fixtures that will add character to your space. Vintage style light fixtures will give old world charm to new build homes that look like vintage homes. Modern metal light fixtures will give a sophisticated air to new custom homes. And trendy light fixtures with black or metal accents are an easy way to take advantage of design trends that can be swapped out when trends change. 

Built-Ins

There’s nothing like custom built-in shelves to make your new home look personalized and polished. Of course storage options are easy to find, but shelves that are built specifically for your home give your home an air of sophistication and make the shelves look seamless in the room. Often built-ins seem to just fade into the walls which makes them an interesting design feature that won’t dominate the room. Having built-ins added to your custom home during the design and building phases will give your rooms a more personal feel. 

Doors

When was the last time you thought about the doors on your home? Customizing your doors will have a big impact on how the home looks and functions. In small spaces sliding barn-style doors can double storage space while still looking stylish. And nothing beats the drama of double doors at the entrance to your home or the entrance to your master suite. Customized doors help you frame the space inside of your home. 

Pet Washing Station

If you have pets you should consider having a pet washing station built into your custom home. These are usually in the laundry room or mudroom and consist of an easy to enter a small shower with a handheld attachment and racks for holding soap and other essentials. With a custom pet washing station right near the outside door, you can wash off your furry friend’s paws when they come in with muddy paws or give them a bath in a clean, secure, and escape-proof space where you won’t have to try and hunch over the tub to clean them.

There are so many ways that you can customize your new home to suit your lifestyle and your taste. When you talk to a Greensboro builder about a custom home be sure to ask about all the different customizations that are available. Stop in the design showroom at R & K Custom homes to talk to a designer today.

6 Must Have Custom Features For Your Luxury Custom Home

custom home Greensboro, NCBuilding a custom home gives homebuyers the chance to design the home of their dreams. Greensboro home builders report that homebuyers often work with the designers to create luxury custom features for their homes that will increase both the beauty and function of their homes. Buying a custom home gives homebuyers the chance to design living spaces that have the luxury upgrades they’ve always wanted. Some of the most popular custom features for a luxurious custom home are:

A Luxe Kitchen Island 

A dream kitchen is a standard part of a custom home and today’s modern kitchens usually are large and spacious which makes them perfect for a custom kitchen island. A luxe kitchen island will provide lots of extra seating and storage and can double the workspace in the kitchen. Go big with your kitchen island and invest in high-quality materials like quartz or marble countertops and custom cabinets so that you will have the beautiful style you want and great functionality as well. 

An Indoor/Outdoor Kitchen With Pergola

Outdoor entertaining space is an important part of life in the South. With mild weather for most of the year, people spent a lot of time entertaining outdoors. You can create the outdoor entertaining space of your dreams in your custom home by having an indoor/outdoor kitchen built. A gorgeous custom built pergola will spread out over the patio to protect it from the elements but it will still be open enough to enjoy the sun and the air. A grill, outdoor fireplace, outdoor living space, and a large outdoor kitchen counter with built-in storage and an outdoor fridge and freezer will make it possible to have lavish parties that combine indoor and outdoor living all year long. You will also love curling up on the outdoor living furniture in front of a beautiful gas fireplace in the winter. 

A Spa-Like Master En Suite

These days it’s not considered a luxury for there to be an en suite bathroom off of the master bedroom. It’s a necessity. But the quality of the en suite can be upgraded to a level of luxury that will make it feel like a customized spa. You can put a sauna in your master en suite. Or create custom-built vanities with built-in storage and specialized lighting for makeup application. A spa-like jetted tub and a huge walk-in master bathroom shower can also increase the feeling of the luxury in the master en suite. Heated towel racks, high-end finishings, and other luxury touches turn the en suite into a true sanctuary and not just another bathroom. 

In-Floor Heating Throughout The House

A wonderful luxury upgrade for a custom home is to have in-floor heating installed throughout the house or even just in the bathrooms. In-floor heating takes the edge off those chilly mornings in the winter and is fantastic for people who have foot problems, arthritis, or just hate cold floors. It’s also very nice for pets. In-floor can also save money on energy bills by keeping your home warmer without using the central heating system. 

An Upgraded Laundry Room

A laundry room may not luxurious, but it can be with the right custom elements. Some people prefer second-floor laundry while others prefer first-floor laundry. But no matter where you want the laundry installed in your home a luxurious laundry room that is large and open is a great way to customize your home. Built-in shelving and custom made counter with durable countertops for folding and sorting and custom windows that let in a lot of natural light can turn laundry from a chore into a pleasure. 

A Media Room 

Greensboro home builders report a big increase in the number of people adding media rooms to their custom homes. If you love movies and TV and you love to entertain a media room is a must-have luxury in a custom home. Media rooms are usually in the finished basement of a home but can also be put on the main floor or on the second floor. Custom-built theater-style seating and custom paint and curtains designed to recreate the true darkness of a theater along with custom built shelving and storage for home theater equipment can give you the media room you’ve always dreamed of. You and your family and friends will love gathering in your custom media room for film and TV screenings.

7 Questions You Should Ask Your Custom Home Builder


custom home Greensboro, NCBuilding a custom home is a big commitment and when you are looking for builders in Greensboro NC you should ask several questions of any potential builder to find one that is reliable and trustworthy. The process of building a custom home requires great communication between you and your builder so it’s important to find a builder that is happy to answer your questions and will work with you at every step of the process. Here are 7 questions you ask any potential home builder:

Are You Licensed In North Carolina?

Any builder that you consider working within North Carolina should be licensed or only employ licensed contractors to do the work on the homes. A builder should be happy to show you their licensing information and paperwork if it’s not on display in their offices.  If they don’t answer or seem hesitant to answer find another builder. 

Are You Insured?

Builders of custom homes should have full insurance coverage and so should any contractors they employ. Just like with the licensing a reputable builder will be happy to show you their proof of insurance along with licensing information. Any builder that doesn’t want to provide that proof is a builder you should avoid. 

How Much Experience Do You Have Building Custom Homes?

Experience matters when it comes to building custom homes. If you want to customize a lot of the features on your home and create your dream home the builders need to be able to make that happen for you. Ask to meet the design team that creates the plans for the homes and talks to them about some of your design ideas to see if they have the experience and knowledge to bring your dream home to life. All builders will have a model home that you can tour but you should also ask if you can tour homes that are under construction or homes that have been recently built to see if they are high quality. 

Can You Provide References?

The best way to judge whether or not a builder is reliable is to find out if other homeowners who have had custom homes built are happy with their homes. Reputable builders should have plenty of references that you can call to find out more about the quality of the homes and if the homeowners were happy with the buying process. Don’t trust a builder who has no references. You can also look online for customer reviews of the builder. 

How Does Financing Work For A Custom Home?

A custom home builder should be prepared to explain the financing process and guide buyers through the paperwork of buying a home. It’s a good idea to have your own agent who specializes in custom-built homes to help you with the final contracts but you should be able to find out the basics of financing a custom home from the builder. Most reputable builders have customer service specialists that are there specifically to help potential buyers understanding their financing options. 

Is There A Warranty On A Custom Home?

Even though the home will be newly built a warranty is important because there could be many things that go wrong with the home within the first ten years. Be sure that you understand what is covered and what isn’t before you start designing a home with a custom home builder. 

How Does Customization And Upgrade Pricing Work?

If you plan on making a lot of customizations to your home and you want to be actively involved in the designing of the home it’s a good idea to understand from the start how the upgrade pricing structure works. All of the prices for upgrades as well as the options should be very clearly listed for you. A designer should have all of the customization options and prices printed out for you to study and to use as you make your decisions. A reputable builder and designer will always be happy to tell you the price of upgrades and materials upfront so that you can decide what customizations and materials you want in your home. Builders in Greensboro, NC that are experts in the field will maintain current price lists that are available all the time for potential home buyers.

7 Questions to Ask Before Selecting a Floor Plan

Lennox Woods #120 -REALTORWhen designing a custom home, one of the biggest decisions to make is what kind of floor plan you want. There are open floor plans, split-level floor plans, single level, multi-level, and all sorts of layout options within the vast array of choices. It can seem overwhelming but R&K, one of the most experienced home builders in Greensboro, NC, can help make the decision easier. Consider these questions to help you choose the right floor plan for your new home.  

  1. What Are My Family’s Needs? Think about your needs and those of the rest of the members of your family. Who will be living in the home? Will it need to be fully accessible for older family members? Are there young children who will need space to move about and play? Consider the needs of everyone before choosing a floor plan for common space and personal space.  
  2. What Will My Family’s Needs Be in 10 Years? Think about the future. Will the family be growing? Will age be a concern for any members? What about mobility? Be sure to consider how your family will change in the years following the building of the home and how long you plan to live there.  
  3. What is My Current Home Lacking? What are you looking for in your new home that your current home doesn’t have? Are you looking for more space? More natural light? More privacy? What can a new home offer that would influence the type of floor plan that would please you? 
  4. Does the Lot Have Any Unusual Characteristics? Is the lot on a hill or sloping? Would it be easier to build the home to accommodate the lay of the land or would it be preferable to regrade the land? Are there natural elements to build around, such as trees or water? 
  5. What Type of Floor Plan Will Best Fit Our Lifestyle? Is your family loud and boisterous, or quiet and relaxed? Does the floor plan need to compliment the family’s personality or attempt to counteract it?  
  6. What Do I Want in a Kitchen? The heart of the home, the kitchen, is a large part of the floor plan for the shared living space in your home. Do you enjoy spending time in the kitchen cooking and baking? Do you prefer to cook alone or do you want to be able to socialize and prepare food simultaneously? Be sure to design your kitchen to suit your preferences.  
  7. What Plan Best Fits My Personal Style? Do you prefer a cozy country farmhouse or a more modern architectural style of home? The floor plan can set the tone for the style of the home and make a big impact on the look and feel of it.
